for more than a week publicly after the killing. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun, and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated, response to what had transpired in cairo. >> now, there are many possible explanations for why the administration took so long to budge from that line. everything from an excess of caution to the fog of war to incompetence or domestic politics. we don't have the answer nailed down on that. what we do have, though, is a collection of inconsistencies between the administration line and our own understanding of the facts. recall our exclusive reporting last night based on several sources that not one single fbi investigator has yet to even set foot at the crime scene in benghazi. that remains true tonight. yet when asked to comment, an american official told us that fbi investigators on the ground are not experien

americans. the fbi has been telling us in the past couple days, their investigation is underway and apparently still underway outside of libya. tensions and security situation is still too difficult in there to put a full team of fbi investigators on the ground according to reports. they're closed about this. what we can confirm. u.s. navy destroyers in the air and aerial drones and they're doing everything they can to try to begin this investigation. what is a very difficult and dangerous landscape. back to you. >> alisyn: greg palkot. thank you so much for that update. let's talk about the military situation in terms of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. o
the scheme. the arrest comes less than two months after the fbi raided the mayor's home and city hall. at that time mack said he didn't do might go wrong. >> hundreds of hours of rourd pages of transcripts all from one book that details some of the most intense moments of last summer's debt ceiling battle. the price of politics gives a behind the scenes look at the negotiation ts between the president and congress al leaders. brianna, how is the white house reacting? >> reporter: they reacting. will they were asked about it today. this book the price of politics by bob woodward which will be out tomorrow, in it bob woodward says essentially that president obama and particularly house speaker john boehner and house republicans really punted on tough decisions that would have put the american economy on better economic, better fiscal footing. and today when jay carney the president carney was asked, i defended president obama, not a surprise, saying he really helped overt a calamity which would have been a default if the debt ceiling had not been increased. here's what he said about. >>
for two days. he was convicted in 2009 for bank fraud. we're told the fbi has contacted him because of possible threats against him. we're told he's not under investigation right now. >> brian, thanks very much. brian todd working this story. less than two years ago we watched as these kinds of protests spread across north africa and the middle east. protesters fighting to overthrow dictators and regimes. fast forward to today. we're seeing these same countries erupt in violence anti-american protests. let's bring in bobby gauche, editor at large for "time" magazine. he wrote this week's cover story "the agents of outrage," an excellent article, bobby. thanks very much. let me read a line from your article. the arab spring replaced the harsh order of hated dictators with a flowering of neophyte democracies. but these governments with weak mandates evershifting loyalties and poor security forces have made the region a more chaotic and unstable place, a place more susceptible than ever to rogue provocateurs fo meanting violent upheavals usually in the name of faith. the bottom line qu
been down this road before. >> reporter: i have. we were back here in 2006 when fbi received what it believed to be a credible tip, and they dug at the horse farm quite a bit. they spent a lot of money doing so but didn't find anything. now they're working on another tip. as you can see what's going on just over our shoulder here, the digging has begun inside that shed. what the police department is doing with some expert help is digging a small hole in concrete inside there so they can fit in a drill to get a soil sample. then they hope to deliver that on monday to michigan state university to try to determine whether there are in fact human remains below there. the question of course is one of many questions. why do police think that the tipster in this case is credible? one reason why is that they said that he claimed that he saw what could have been a body being buried right here in this area around the same time that jimmy hoffa disappeared back in 1975. the police chief says the tipster never claimed that he saw jimmy hoffa being buried here, but the timing is in the vicinit
and keep going at it. no one believes it because it's not true. >> how can he he know that? fbi teams are just arriving in libya. the investigation is underway. we know that they were armed -- the attackers at least in lib afterthe embassy were armed with rocket propelled grenades, you pick those up as you are heading toward the protest? >> you are exactly right. the white house has a handle on the intent of the attackers? they have no clue. common sense tells you it's bigger than a video. >> the problem is it goes to the rationale of the obama candidacy four years ago which was total condemnation of the bush policy. total condemnation of our position, especially in the muslim world. so the president, president obama preached empathy, preached an association based on his past and his education and based upon where he grew up and said, listen, i understand you. now the muslim world has rejected it and, in some ways, rejecting not only america but the obama presidential handout. >> that is certainly charles krauthammer's theory. he was on "special report" last night. >> this has nothing
watched that video as he was receiving his first intelligence briefing at the fbi building in los angeles. but then there was that mother jone video that came out overnight. we don't have a sense as to whether or not he's watched that video yet, but his campaign has said that the comments he made in that mother jones video regarding israel are consistent with what he has said before. i asked kevin madden at one point, do you think all of this is going to blow over? and, brooke, his comment was, depends on you guys. talking about us. >> i'm curious, you clarify one of his remarks. one thing he didn't touch on last night, let me play part of the clip and i'll ask you the question on the other side. you talk about the news conference thrown together, media numbers in shorts and t-shirts. >> it is not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff, in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way than i did in a setting like that. and so i'll -- i'm sure i'll point that out as time goes on. but we don't even have the questi
. >> separate from the fbi investigation you mentioned a few moments ago, is there any sort of inquiry going on here at the white house among the president's national security team to get to the bottom of, you told the american people on september 10th we've taken steps to protect americans here at homeland and abroad, obviously with four americans tragically being killed, the steps were not good enough. is there an inquiry going on here to figure out what went wrong? >> you're conveniently -- motivation behind them will be decided by that investigation. >> what carney did do there is sidestep the specific question whether or not there was some kind of inquiry into someone potentially dropping the ball here. instead he talked broadly about the overall investigation into the violence there in libya, joe. >> dan, stay with us. i want to bring in arwa damon in benghazi. she's on the phone. and cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott at the state department. arwa, first to you. you've been talking to libyan officials. what's the latest on what you're hearing about whether this attack was pre-p
the fbi is trying to resolve is how and when they learned of the annex. glen daugherty and tyrone woods were killed there in an attack that was even better equipped and more sophisticated on the first wave. >> people on the ground have seen the fragments. the remains of the mortars and the heavy weapons that were used. >> we have made clear that there were armed assailants who used heavy weapons. >> i just don't think that people come to protest equipped with rpg's and other heavy weapons. >> president obama was first briefed about the benghazi attack about 90 minutes after it began. what has emerged since then, however, from the missed opportunities to redress the inadequate security to the deaths involved and the geopolitical ramifications of the event up to and including the shifting accounts of it put forward by the administration is the dawn of a major foreign policy scandal. one, alisyn, dave, and clayton, that will be investigated and dissected in hearings and official proceedings for years to come. back to you guys in new york. >> will it be an issue now with 45 days left before
